To win the "Best Value" prize, a sailboat doesn't have to be the fastest, have the most clever touches, or be the cheapest. It must, however, convince the judging panel that its builder has assembled at a fair, reasonable price a complete package of cruising requirements in a well-designed and well-built package that will deliver predictable and satisfactory performance for years to come. If the boat maintains a high resale value, that seals the deal. For 1999, the judges concluded that no vessel better met these stringent requirements than the Island Packet 380.
"Sylvia V" is a great example of a fully found cruising vessel, ready and waiting for her next offshore adventure.

The Island Packet 380 represents a further evolution of the design, engineering, and construction philosophy proven in over 1500 yachts and in countless miles of all kinds of cruising. The Full Foil keel continues as the foundation of the Island Packet concept, and its design and construction provide a host of advantages to the cruising sailor: moderate draft for access to a wider variety of cruising grounds, integral one-piece construction for superior strength, a highly effective airfoil shape for excellent windward performance, and a modern hull form for enhanced speed and maneuverability. In addition, the safety and seakeeping offered by this keel design provide both piece of mind and additional comfort while underway. The well laid out deck with meticulously molded detail offers wide walkways, raised bulwarks forward, full length continuous stainless steel cabin top handrails, double lifelines with welded rails fore and aft, and two tone premium diamond pattern, slip resistant surfaces, all designed to enhance safety and security while moving about on the deck. Lifeline gates feature a teak step plate with a recess to accept aft led reefing - furling lines, keeping the gate area free of loose lines when in port. The cockpit has full length contoured seats that accommodate a large crew or invite stretching out. The helmsperson will enjoy excellent visibility from the raised seat with padded backrest. The console mounted steering features Island Packet's trademark rack and pinion geared design, providing a combination of reliability, strength, and sensitivity unmatched by any other wheel steering design. A steering wheel brake and single lever engine control lever are also provided on the pedestal, with additional room provided for a dealer - owner installed instrument pod. The engine panel itself is within easy reach of the helm and features full analog gauges for all readouts.
Cockpit convenience features abound with standard details such as a built-in insulated beverage locker, two large seat lockers with gas support struts for easy access, a hand held personal shower (cold only) that easily reaches the stern swim step, deep swim ladder with rubber treads, two stern rail seats, and a pedestal mounted folding table. Safety concerns are equally well met with a pin lock for securing companionway drop boards, robust padeyes for safety harness attachments, a raised companionway bridgedeck, large cockpit scupper drain capacity, and self-locking seat locker hatches with push button hasps that release from inside and out. Island Packet's long term commitment to the cutter rig, paralleling the choice of experienced offshore cruisers and short handed racers worldwide, is due to its versatility, ease of use, and excellent performance over a wide range of wind and sea conditions.
The 380 improves upon this highly desired sailplan even further with a freestanding staysail boom, simplifying control, and adding performance to this highly effective sail. All sails are built in the US by Sobstad, and both the high clew jib and the staysail include Harken furling systems as standard equipment to further simplify sail handling. The mainsail is equipped with a dual, single line reefing system or, optionally, an in-mast furler. Both systems have control lines led aft, allowing sail trim and setting - reefing activity to be done from the comfort and security of the cockpit. Thoughtful features such as self-tailing winches, color coded lines, rope clutches, traveler control lines, and coaming line stowage bins make sailing easier than ever. A molded sole area with a slip-resistant surface surrounds the base of the companionway ladder and extends into the nav and galley areas to provide both secure footing and easy maintenance for this busy central area. Added convenience is provided by a lift-out central teak grate with dust pan and lighted bilge access below, interior courtesy lights with a switch located at the companionway entrance, an interior lock for the sliding companionway hatch, and teak drop-boards with a fixed, etched glass portlight and an interior storage rack.
Belowdecks, one is immediately impressed by the 380's open accommodation plan and spacious surroundings. A harmonious blend of practical cruising features and liveaboard comfort is evidenced throughout, giving the Island Packet 380 what are perhaps the best accommodations of any yacht in its size range. The galley, immediately to the starboard side of the companionway, is easily accessible to the cockpit and the main salon, and features numerous convenience details for the cruising sailor. A generous, wraparound counter provides ample work space for food preparation while numerous drawers, lockers, and laminate-lined cabinets offer abundant space for organized provisioning and kitchenware storage. A sealed burner LPG stove and oven, along with a standard (115V) microwave oven, deep polished stainless steel sinks, overhead light, and a slide out trash receptacle make for pleasurable galley duties. The well insulated icebox features a gasketed lid that opens on gas struts to reveal a divided, lighted, and electric drain pump equipped box. Provisions for an electric refrigeration system have been thoughtfully provided, allowing for simple installation by either the dealer or owner. A foldup counter extension, built-in dish rack and cutlery storage drawers, and numerous other detail features are sure to be appreciated both in harbor and underway. The main salon's large, central living area is equally suited for social gatherings, off-watch retreats, or gourmet dining. The central hinged table with overhead lights may be either secured against the bulkhead mounted bottle and glass rack, or easily lowered to make a large dining area. An exceptional amount of interior stowage is available in the salon, as elsewhere in the yacht, due in large part to the generous tankage centrally located below the cabin sole. Besides the obvious benefit of improving stowage, this feature also provides additional comfort while underway by keeping the considerable weight of tank fluids low and out of the ends of the yacht. This also reduces fore and aft trim changes with varying tank levels. Both settees are full length for added sleeping space, with the portside bunk pulling out to provide a nice sized double. Beautiful cabinetry and joiner-work in select hand oiled teak, premium designer fabric over dual density 5-inch cushions, well placed light fixtures and handrails, numerous opening ports, deck vents and hatches, and durable and easily maintained overhead and hull surfaces make this salon and the entire interior as attractive and as it is practical. The nav station is situated at the aft end of the port side main salon bunk and doubles as the yacht's main control center. A deluxe, well labeled electrical panel controls all AC and DC functions on the yacht, and ample extra breakers and mounting space are provided for dealer - owner installed accessories. A chart drawer, large enough for bound chart packs or folded Admiralty-sized charts, is provided underneath the settee while a handy drawer for navigator tools is accessed just above the table. The forward owner's cabin is a real delight with a queen sized, centerline island berth with access from both sides. The aft half of the berth, mounted on gas support struts, lifts to reveal a large "blanket chest." Drawers, storage bins, and a generous hanging locker also provide additional storage space for personal gear and provisions. Room for air conditioning equipment, and other convenience features such as preinstalled fan and stereo speaker wires, facilitate after-market additions. A Dorade vent, opening ports, and a large overhead hatch provide light and ventilation, and a private door into the head further enhances this exceptional forward stateroom. Island Packet yachts have long been noted for their exceptionally livable designs, and the 380's large head will further that reputation. Accessed from the owner's cabin or the main salon, it features a generous vanity with cabinet below a deep polished oval stainless steel sink, a large overhead hatch, opening port, and several lockers for toiletry items. The head is made particularly spacious with a clever folding shower stall enclosure that stows against the aft bulkhead when not in use. This features a full length mirror in the stowed position and, when open, divides the shower from the vanity area with full height, textured, clear acrylic doors. A folddown teak shower seat and wraparound countertop surrounds the head providing "captain's chair" seating and making the whole area very user friendly. In the aft cabin the most notable feature - besides the large Pullman style athwart ship bunk - is the built-in hideaway sink. This sink is mounted in a pullout, drawer-like unit with a folding Swedish made faucet and a hinged countertop cover, allowing guests to freshen up without a trip forward to the head. Another full length mirror, two opening ports, overhead hatch, large cedar-lined hanging locker, and bureau provide comfort and convenience.
